5 of the best houses to buy in Cambridge
Best known as one of the UK's most prestigious university cities, Cambridge is home to around 25,000 students.

But the city is not all study, study, study.

It's also home to a multitude of research, development, software, creative and tech companies, meaning employment is high.

Indeed, Cambridge is often referred to as 'Silicon Fen' due to the density of tech development on the city's various science parks.

Throw into the mix museums, musical roots and a host of festivals, as well as fast transport links into London, and it's easy to see why Cambridge is just as popular with young professionals and families as much as the brightest student minds.
